Andrew and Subina were fantastic. You can tell they truly love sailing and enjoy meeting people. This was my favorite part of our trip to San Francisco. We will do it again for sure.

AH-Mazing. I'm getting to this review late, as I was in San Fran in May. One thing I would recommend is to dress warm. It's cold and windy on the bay. Also, if you choose a glass of wine, don't drink it on the deck...More

Definitely a must do on your San Fran itinerary. We visit SF frequently, have never done this cruise, but am happy we did. The weather was perfect and the views breathtaking. Kudos to the crew. Well worth the time and $$.
